Why buy local? Freshness that’s why! Freshness if a key factor in selecting a tasty bird. Buying local Massachusetts turkeys ensures a fresh turkey every time. Massachusetts grown turkeys can be purchased “fresh dressed” many seasons of the year, not just during the holidays.
Locally grown turkeys are tender and moist. They’re carefully raised to allow a full finish to develop. This means there is no need to baste these turkeys; they have a natural layer of fat under the skin.
Buy from a Massachusetts turkey grower and deal directly with the person who raises your turkeys and guarantees their freshness. Many turkey growers also offer turkey roasted to order, complete with gravy and stuffing. Turkey pies, soups, salad, and party platters are other items at some of our native stores.
